Day 5

Hello everyone, this is the 5th day of my treatment with Claravis. I call it also Accutane because it has the same chemicals, and everybody knows Accutane more.

What a day! I came from work hours ago and I realized that I took the lunch bag of someone else by mistake, it looks exactly like mine, same colors, blue and black, same brand........ugh, the things that happen in life. No wonder I have so much acne. I stress about the silliest things....well......maybe the owner of the lunch bag I took does not think is silly. I will put it back and hope mine is still there.....lol........

Ok so, I still have acne in my face, but the pimples look dry, and with dark scabs. After I washed my face in the morning and applied make-up some of the pimples in the left side of my face started to bleed without me applying pressure to my face.

My face is still oily. It still have not gotten dry like people say, maybe it will in a few weeks. My lips did not feel dry today, and my eyes either.

My face and mental state have stayed the same.

Isn't it annoying when some person you barely know ask you if you have done something for your acne, or if you have tried proactive?

It happened today again. Some man I barely know had the guts to tell me that he knows a friend who was like me, and got treated with certain dermatologist.

Maybe you would think "Oh he was trying to help"........but I though it was inappropriate. Another lady from a place I was working months ago asked me the same thing. We barely knew each other, and she immediately asked the same question. Have you gone to a derma? Have you tried Proactive? I had a friend who had her face really bad like you and got cured.......Then they stare at your face like you had some terrible contagious disease. How rude. I am such a respectful person and I stay out of peoples business that I never ask those people "I know a nutritionist who can help you lose weight", or have you gone to Jenny Craig? "You should try to exercise more often", You look fat".

(/Edit) Actually this is the third person who brings this up to me, in these last monts, the second one was a woman who told me that she had her face like me and she took isotrein (?) and it worked for her...plus Proactive. I pardon her because she suffered from the problem and suggested me a dermatologist near me telling me his complete name and location unlike the other two people who did not even knew where the heck those dermatologists are and their names pff.......*lol*. But I think I have tried isotrein before and never worked just temporary and my acne came back again and Proactive?????? That is for mild acne, not cystic acne. (Edit/)

I once talked to this cosmetologist once. She works for a dermatologist I wanted to go but it is to far from home. She told me that she has seen and talked with people on the street with major skin problems and she never comments anything to them about their condition...because she thinks is rude, and makes her look nosy..........and she is a professional. People are just plain nosy and have nothing better to do. If you are an intimate friend or family or someone who really careeeeeeeees about me, then I will listen to your suggestions to cure my acne, but if you are some random person I just meet, or someone who I don't like, don't bother.

My face can clear up but I know people are going to find other flaws I have because they are too insecure of themselves.

Thank God I am finally getting this treatment, and I hope it works. I will pray to God for this medicine to work, so I can have clear skin and don't suffer from this anymore.

I have an avocado mask in my face right now...........100% natural.

Buh-byeeeeeeeeeeee.

Hey there,Sorry to hear about your day, hope you get your lunch bag back :- isotretinoin is Accutane, its the brand i am on in the UK, im just about to pop my 2nd pill, here goes!I had kind of a mental attack last night, surely accutane cant do that on the first day? Or im putting my self under far too much pressure, im the worst stress head and worrier ever, i hate it! You asked about IB in your mail, its the Initial Breakout that every one is supposed to get when they first start this treatment, i think im more scared about that as i have 2 weddings next week and then we are going on holiday, maybe i should of started this when every thing was done?! Just to let you no i have now been to several cosmetic derms as they call there selfs and they have all offered different things, the main 1 being Deep FX laser treatment but i hear and read more horror storys than good so i dont think ill ever go for that and alot of people end up with more scars. There's loads of before and after pics on so many sites that offer it but how do we no they are real? I've even thought of flying to America as they seem to deal with it all much more than the UK but again is it worth it, i would want to die if they made my face look worse!I never had acne at all until i was 26, all my life ive had perfect skin, im now 31 and have a face full of holes and pits and find life such a struggle, I have taken all the photo's down in my house and basically my whole life has took a U turn, my poor boyfriend is really feeling it, its changed every thing, i feel so insecure. My boyfriend is a really hot guy and i find it hard to understand that he still finds me attractrive because i feel so ugly. I feel some one has thrown a curse on me, i no thats crap but thats just how i feel, out of no were my face has been destroyed, now i have to grow old in this skin.Will Accutane cause further scarring? I just wish it dont :(Chat soon

Ooops sorry, no the lady told me she used another drug, it was not isotrein, I wrote it by mistake, she took Tetracycline antibiotics. I think I took tetracycline antibiotics years ago which only helped temporary. She was trying to help because she went through the same thing and found a solution which was nice of her.......but it bugs me when people who have no clue about acne, or have never experienced bad acne, "try" to help people who barely know.I had a good day today lol, I got my lunch bag back haha.Relax, I also worry too, I will write an entry soon about some concern I have. I don't know if I am doing the right thing by taking a generic drug and not the original brand.It is all in your head, the worst thing that this drug can do is kill you which is rare. I read that some people have killed themselves when taking this drug, but it has not been proved if Accutane was the cause. Also PLEASE don't get pregnant, maybe that is what worries you more, because if I had a partner I would be scaaaaaaared. That is why is an obligation to use two forms of birth control. If you experience a deep depression or a strange pain in your body, tell your doctor, but relax, you will be fine. My worst fear is that this drug fails and does not clear my acne, but I will think positively and take it as directed.Oh IB, I think I am staring to experience IB but I don't know if I got this breakout because I got my period last week. I am not sure, I will write about this today.Now I understand your anxiety well, you may experience a major breakout. My doctor told me that will happen to me but then it will be gone, but everyone is different maybe you will get a couple of pimples and that's it. Try to use some makeup that is good for your skin and is not oily, Ask your derma. I am using Revlon Color Stay for Oily Skin, but I am considering of checking something else. Try to cover your blemishes with makeup and you will be fine, do not worry about it.Yeah it sucks when you go to different doctors and they offer different treatments and all of them look promising but expensive, and you have no idea of what to do. I may consider a scar removal treatment in the future but I will do a lot of research, I don't want to pay for something expensive that will not work, or something that will make me look worse. I am not living in the U.S but where I am from the treatments are the same as the U.S. Many dermas from my country go to the U.S to get educated about the latest technology to treat acne. Do your research, this website is very good for asking other people about their experiences.Wow you got acne very late in life, yours is called "adult acne". My acne started since I was in highschool, but in college it got really really bad. I was talking very tough science classes which were stressing me out and this causes me huge cysts. I graduated college and I am now working. I feel more relaxed but I still suffer from acne, so stress is not the only factor. My skin is oily, my parents had acne too, so is genetic. I don't think food is causing me acne because in my home we eat healthy.Don't underestimate your self. You are a valuable person even though you have acne. You must be an intelligent and successful person, and beautiful too. You still can be beautiful. I have also felt like shit, today was one of those days, because my acne is all red and huge. It is almost in 3-D, everyone sees it and looks at it, and it embarrasses me, but I have to be strong, I am a pretty girl, but I just have a genetic problem that it is very common in the world. If you don't like my face, don't look at it. People are always going to point out your flaws. Your boyfriend must love you for who you are on the inside, and that is the love that counts. Don't think he will leave you because of your acne. When I had my ex boyfriend, he worried about my acne and he told his mother to do me facials, (she is a cosmetologists). That was nice of her, but the treatments never worked. I sometimes worry about my physical appearance and feel that the reason I don't have a bf is because of my face, but that is not the real cause. The reason we are not together is not acne.....it was something else.I don't know if Accutane causes scarring.....it is suppose to heal it......that is what I think.Take Care, and don't worry, we will be fine.
